Hi everyone! I’m kicking off my military life series with a new bloggy mil-spouse friend from over at A Boy, A Girl, and the Marine Corp. The goal of this series is two part – first, to talk about unique situations with the military and highlight different portions of them just so that people can learn something. Secondly, maybe someone out there in that same situation is struggling, hopefully from this series you will find that you are not alone. There are other amazing women out there that are living the same life you are! This is an amazing post and I hope you take the time to read every word. Its amazing.

Instead, my best friend, who I did volunteer work for, fired me the day I kissed my husband for the last time and watch him board a bus that would take him to the plane that would fly him to his station in Iraq. The reason? Because I told her I couldn’t make a few phone calls because I was stressed. When I asked her to understand why, she told me she couldn’t possibly, because her husband wasn’t deployed. Not only did my heart break, but it was that moment that I realized what it meant to be a reserve wife, caught in the middle of two worlds.
